The Houston Texans will continue their preseason schedule with a home game against the New England Patriots on Saturday, Aug. 19. The team released their second unofficial depth chart on Monday and several former Clemson players were listed throughout the team.

Star wide receiver Deandre "Nuk" Hopkins was obviously on the first team opposite receiver Will Fuller while Deshaun Watson was listed behind Tom Savage as the first-team signal caller.

However, Watson was impressive during his first NFL preseason game and continues to push Savage as Watson is reportedly doing great at practice.

Watson finished the first preseason game going 15-for-25 passing for 179 yards with zero turnovers and had three rushes for 24 yards including a 15-yard touchdown run.

On defense, D.J. Reader was listed as the first-team nose guard, veteran Marcus Gilchrist was 2nd team free safety, and rookie Carlos Watkins was labeled third-team on the defensive line.

Wide receiver Germone Hopper is a new addition to the Texans but did not make it yet on the depth chart. He is the sixth former Tiger on the Texans' roster.
